Pregnant guppies

I have 2 pregnant guppies in one tank nothing else. They are so huge it can only be a week max
Before they give birth. Will they be ok in the tank with the mums until I notice the fry? Once I notice the fry will move the mums back in the main tank.

They should be fine, IME the females won't eat while giving birth but just in case have lots of cover for the fry. A bunch of fake plants free floating will work if you don't have real plants. I have Java moss and hornwort in my nursery tank

Duckweed, hornwort cabomba, java moss can also float. With fry miy opinion is the more plants the better. They aren't just hiding places they are also food sources as there are microorganisms living on them.

As far as I'm aware Java doesn't float, well at least mine doesn't.
